Showcasing the personal stories of a variety of advocates at work in our community, Faces of Advocacy celebrates everyday community members taking meaningful action. We share this showcase to help others understand advocacy happens on all levels, for many reasons and in a variety of ways. No matter your political persuasion or personal talents, there is room for all of us to express what we feel is most important.
